Dark clear brown ale with a big bubbled white head. Faint malt aroma. Nice crisp malt with light diacetyl, thin and overall, boring. On tap Feb. 10, 2006.

Pours brown with a tanish head that is lingering. When poured, the carbonation looked very lively and appealing. Smells of yogurt, sugar. Tastes nutty and chocolatey with some nice roasted malty qualities. Tastes more like a stout than a Scottish Ale. I have a few bombers of this one I’ll come back to to rerate.

Bomber - Pours a brownish dark amber in color with a frothy tan head and some decent lacing. The head disappeared pretty quickly. Aroma is malty and sweet with the barest hint of hops. Flavor is malty and fairly sweet. Some roasted malt and a slight caramel/toffee undertone. Enough hop bitterness to barely balance. A hint of coffee. I was a bit surprised that they did not use peated malt in this brew. Easy drinking, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

Bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis (thanks!). Poured a darker and cloudy brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Earthy aromas and tastes with some caramel and toffee. A sour funkiness came out in the taste.

Thanks to HopDog. Pours a brownish amber with a small white head. Aroma is sour with some slight funk and sweetness. Flavor is roasty with some sour at the end and slight coffee. Didn’t really enjoy this one too much.

beer pours a hazy amber, rather in the shade of a slightly watered-down cola. nice head leaves tons of lace. nose is sweet and cany-like, with some toffee overtones. flavor is again full of the sweet, somewhat cloying caramel flavors, interestingly balanced with a light, earthy hopping and a touch of roastiness. pretty good balance, but still ultimately a rather sweet beer, which slows down the drinking.

Bouteille-Peu de goût, café fumé? Brune foncée un peu troublé. Pas plus de commentaire, j’ai de la difficulté à relire mes notes. Maudite boisson!
